Here is the adult shots... Niether of them toping 5'ft - taken in the early '60's... Sometimes it makes me feel not actually sad, but wistful maybe for these two, who were such best friends, and both of them aunts of our daughters and Don's sisters...

When young people die the tragedy is such unrealised potential for life...and lots of other things also of course.

I believe its important to drag out the old photos and give those peole some of the life they should have had, by explaining to the kids who they were, and where they were in the family.
Kids need to know who came before to give them a feeling for the continuity of life and also its impermanence.

Keeps their feet on the ground I reckon. Posted by Picasa
